How a Surfboard Works
DJ Stanfill

How does your surfboard actually work?Most surfers simply accept the fact that we paddle into a wave, stand up and ride it, without every really questioning what's making this happen, or what's going on beneath our feet.Perhaps when we're shopping for a new surfboard we might think about the effects of variables such as length, width, volume, bottom contours or tail-shape, but for the most part, the majority of us are blissfully ignorant.
